Apartment Jade Regent
As long as she can remember, Zaiobe has been mute. She has vague memories of a demonic wind snatching her voice away after she found a strange statue of a four-winged demon in a high cave in the western Kodar Mountains 2 years ago, and no memories at all before then. Since that time, Zaiobe has been developing strange new magical powers, and has followed a twisted urge to fly south, to seek out other statues and sites sacred to the four-winged demon. She knows now that this demon is Pazuzu, and she’s come to believe he stole her voice to compel her to accomplish a mission, but she’s still unclear on what that mission is. Upon finding the small cult of Pazuzu at Brinewall several months ago, however, she offered her services—although mute, she was able to speak with Kikonu via a limited form of telepathy—and secured a place among his followers. It wasn’t long before she and Kikonu became lovers, and not long after that before they had the first of many powerful arguments and disagreements. Their last spat had been their greatest yet, for when Kikonu discovered that he could speak in Zaiobe’s voice when he used his steal voice ability on her, the harpy grew enraged and shot Kikonu through the arm with a flaming arrow. Kikonu took the shot in stride, so amused was he at being able to use her voice when she could not.
